1. The making of GOT’s visual effects

    The Game of Thrones, Season 4 - VFX making of reel is a fascinating look at the visual effects that were used for Game of Thrones Season 4. They accomplish this by showing overlays of the original footage, along with the layers that were added to create the final scenes as seen on the show.

  2. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Spray Paintings

    Be Street presents Create and Destroy

    To celebrate the 6th anniversary of Be Street magazine, we asked a bunch of artists to do what they do best, be creative on a given theme très 90’s: The Ninja Turtles. We took Nychos, Broken Fingaz, Nikibi and Sixo to a secret location in Paris destined for destruction, where they left some pretty impressive ephemeral artwork.

  3. Works for me.
I messed up a bit, especially the mouth and they eyes. I’ll be surprised if you can guess who this is. Hint: he’s from the 80s.

  5. How to Create Wired.com’s Fat Highlighter Underline Link Style

    Using simple CSS

    I was reading some Wired.com article the other day and I noticed the text link style they use is pretty cool. It’s not just the regular underline seen on most websites. The underline they use is thick, so the links look like they are marked with a fat highlighter. I did a little inspecting and the style was achieved using very simple CSS: a combination of border-bottom and inset box-shadow.

    a
    {
      color: black;
      text-decoration: none;
      border-bottom: 1px solid lightcyan;
      box-shadow: 0 3px 0 lightcyan inset;
    }

    Text link

    There you have it. Now you can also recreate this style for your own blog or website. I made a codepen for this, check it out in action.

  6. Bad Stereotype or Funny?
I recently came upon some really cool caricatures of football players in World Cup 2014, drawn by artist Keuj Bardoux. I think the work is really amazing and fun, but when I look at the Kagawa caricature, I feel that the illustration is a bit too stereotypical.
In my own opinion, I consider tilted squinty eyes as a really bad stereotype of Asians, almost racist (another bad one would be straw hats). I look at this caricature and I just can’t help but think that it looks like an Asian character from the Simpsons. I don’t think it’s racist but it just looks cheap.
Kagawa
Kagawa’s eyes don’t actually tilt like that, even when he’s laughing. What do you think? If you are Asian, do you feel it’s a bad stereotype?

  7. The Colorful Streets of Macau at Night

    90 Days of China: Series 2

    Like any advanced cities in China, Macau at night is very colorful. Storefronts are lit up with neon signs. While walking around at night, I was mostly looking for bright typography to shoot. I passed by many interesting places, including this restaurant called Shinya Shokudō. If you are a fan of Japanese dramas, you’ll probably geek out when you see it. There was also this place called Darling Massage, I don’t think I need to elaborate more on that.

    The coolest thing I saw was this tiny little red jeep though. It had an Avis logo on it, I assumed it was rental car. It’d be pretty sweet to drive around in that. I’ll have to rent that next time I land in Macau.

  8. Alley Way

    90 Days of China: Series 2

    This is a small alley way near the Senado Square in Macau. The time was right at dawn. I loved the combination of the blue sky and the purple lighting that was cast on the alley, plus the green plants right in the middle that created this symmetrical view that’s full of colors.
